Currently In June

June 2, 2010

Current Book(s): After my ADD last month where I was reading five books at once, I decided that I’m going to restrict myself to one at a time from now on. Right now I’m in the middle of The Well at the World’s End Vol. 1 by William Morris, one of the first novels in the fantasy genre, and one which influenced both C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien.

Current Playlist: Since I’m back to running a few times a week I thought I’d share some of my favorite running songs.

  • Christy Nockels – “Marvelous Light”
  • Katie Herzig – “Hologram”
  • Matt Redman – “You Never Let Go”
  • Third Eye Blind – “Wounded” and “Semi-Charmed Life”
  • Coheed and Cambria – “A Favor House Atlantic” and “Blood Red Summer”
  • Jimmy Eat World – “Bleed American”
  • The Killers – “Mr. Brightside”
  • ‘N Sync – “Pop”
  • Queen – “Don’t Stop Me Now”
  • Scissor Sisters – “I Don’t Feel Like Dancin'”

Current Shame-Inducing Guilty Pleasure: I was racking my brain trying to think of one, and then I realized that I’m sitting in my husband’s recliner in my pajamas watching my third episode of Gossip Girl. So there you go.

Current Drink: I don’t drink this plain, but chocolate soy milk is perfect in coffee.

Current Food: I discovered dark chocolate covered acai berries. Upside: they are delicious and full of antioxidants. Downside: way too easy to overeat!

Current Favorite Show: Not really into anything right now except The Bachelorette. It’s just plain entertaining.

Current Wishlist: We’re buying a dining room table from Chelsea this weekend, and we’ll need some chairs. Also curtains, shelving, and wall art, obviously:

Current Needs: We really need to get Oliver fixed. Seriously. Need. Seriously.

Current Triumphs: Last weekend we were so understaffed at work that I had six patients, was in charge, and had multiple chemos to give. I was so proud of myself that I got it all done on time and without having a breakdown. Also, I consider it a triumph that my manager asked me to work 16 hours yesterday and I said no.

Current Bane(s) of my Existence: The oppressive summer heat has come, making it difficult to run or walk the dogs at any time other than the hour after or the hour before sunrise.

Current Celebrity Crush: Y’all know I love soccer, right? And the World Cup is starting this month, only the greatest sporting event ever (in my opinion). So I only thought it fitting to feature some gems on the U.S. Men’s team.

First up, Carlos Bocanegra, defender, 31 years old:

Benny Failhaber, midfielder, 25 years old:

And although he barely didn’t make the national team’s final roster, Brian Ching is still the hometown hero of the Houston Dynamo:

See? Soccer’s not so bad, is it?

Current Indulgence: Buying that dining room table even though we didn’t plan for the purchase. It was just too perfect for us to pass up.

Current Blessing(s): A clean house and air conditioning. CAN I GET AN AMEN.

Current Outfit: I’m wearing some Gap Body sleep shorts and a ribbed tank top. So comf.

Current Excitement: The front half of our house is coming together, and my in-laws planted some flowers in our backyard. I have this weekend off, which I always look forward to, and in two weeks David and I are going camping with some of our siblings. I’m excited about that, but also hoping it won’t be a complete disaster!

Current Link:I spent some time yesterday signing up for free samples from this website. In 6-8 weeks I’ll be getting a bunch of random stuff in the mail.

Happy June!

    From dadman:

    A recent survey showed that more women prefer pro soccer than any other sport. I wonder why?

    PS. You might want to google images of Cristian Ronaldo, that’ll get soccer a few more fans

    From Emily Jane:

    Queen’s “Don’t Stop Me Now” is one of the best songs EVER MADE :) And it always reminds me of choreographed zombie-bashing a la Shaun of the Dead :)

    Holy cow are those guys beautiful or what!? I’m kind of in awe of them at the moment. And thank YOU for sharing =)

    Congrats on both job accomplishments (completing all the tasks AND saying no to a longer shift). Both very huge things!

    Um wow those acai berries look amazing! What do they taste like? I definitely want to try and pick some up! Where did you get them?

    From kapachino:

    My mother-in-law gave them to us, but she said she got them at Costco. I’ve never shopped there but I’m about to start if that’s what it takes!
